Gray is active in the market with WTVY-TV, which is primarily a CBS affiliate and also carries programming from CW and MNT on digital side-channels.
The seller is New Moon Communications LLC, headed by Darnell Washington. Washington acquired the station, along with LPTV outlets in Jackson TN, Jonesboro AR and Ottumwa IA from MMTC for $12,004 pursuant to an FCC application dated 11/30/10. MMTC had received them as a donation from Trinity Broadcasting Network.
Washington will eclipse the amount he paid for all four by a factor of five (almost) for just the one in Dothan – the price for WDON will be $60K cash.
